This is Android's solution AS WELL AS its problem. ... morei stated it as a whole concept, not just for Android. thats why i included depending on the architecture used.
One drawback of Android is its use of Dalvik VM to run native executions. I think they used Dalvik for copyright issues to Oracle/Sun. Anyway,example of this flaw is person A(user) needs to talk to person C(hardware), but he needs a middle man peron B(Dalvik) to talk to person C. thats a flaw for using VM...
All other OS i know has a capablity to talk to the hardware layer directly via its naive machine language.
*oooh brings back what i learned in CCS.

This is Android's solution AS WELL AS its problem. Although all apps are made possible through this, because it creates a virtual machine, it considerably slows down the execution. CMIIW.

As for the dual/multi core for Mobile apps. Developers "write" apps based on the current hardware available. You cant write a code for something that doesnt exist yet. So they are all basing it to single cores at first. Due to Androids Fragmentation, its really hard to code an app based on different hardwares which the OS is coded to run with. Thats why its harder for Devs to write Andoid apps due to fragmentation, if they want a seamless app they have to code for HTC, Samsung, etc. To avoid that they write it based on the most common hardware which is singe cores. Creating an App may take months or years if you follow SDLC. You must also consider compatibility, single cores optimized app can run on higher spec(depends on the architecture). But dual core apps cant run on a lower spec hardware(depends on architecture).
FYI you can run "retro-games" on a PC via emulators.

"Those apps cannot really take advantage of multiple cores."
To rephrase that line... "They CAN run, but are NOT OPTIMIZED to do so."
I was blown on the last paragraph. Famicom games on the PC? I assure you are using an emulator?
Speaking of 16-bit games on the PC, I still play Object on my 32bit XP partition.
hi guys. can somebody tell me why this phone and many other high end unlocked phones still lacking 4G capabilities? whats the use? i own nokia c6-01 on att network and regular internet it is ok. but when it comes to watch videos they pause a lot specially youtube. (NOTE) I'M TALKING WHEN TETHERING ON MY LAPTOP,WHEN USING PHONE BY IT SELF EVERYTHING RUNS GOOD EVEN VIDEOS. if it was a 4G phone would i notice any difference when tethering? any advice or comment? thanks.

actually, Applications written for single core can run on multi cores. it's the other way around. Applications for multicores can't be used on single cores since processing power and speed is radically decreased.
That's why for games and applications...for example on a PC, there is a notification there that says must have atleast Intel Celeron(eg) or higher. Meaning to say the application requires that specific CPU but would work on more advance one.
Have you tried playing BATTLE CITY or PACMAN in a PC? that was written for a 16bit family computer.

very much correct. I wonder how WP would fair on pureview technology and if devs has already apps in mind for this.
